The symposium will be held at the Millennium Centre (http://www.millctr.com/), Johnson City Tennessee. It is located across from East Tennessee State University campus. The venue is a complete conference-ready facility, and has numerous meeting rooms. For the ISBS conference, the facility can seat up to 100 in Room 1, and up to 150 in Room 2 for oral presentations (downstairs), and large ballrooms for keynote lectures (hold up to 400), poster presentations, and meals/coffee break. Breakfast and lunch will be provided and served at the Millennium Centre. Each oral presentation room and keynote lecture hall has full features on audio-visual equipment;MicrophoneOverhead projectorA PC computer with Microsoft Powerpoint software
The venue also has wireless high speed internet access anywhere within the facility. For exhibitors, there are two large alcoves (upstairs & downstairs) with enough space to set up their biomechanics measuring devices and products. The hallway is just outside of the coffee-break and poster presentation areas to have heavy flow of registrants throughout the conference. The exhibition area on hallway is also equipped with electrical outlets and wireless internet access. The Millennium Centre is connected by sky-bridge to the Carnegie hotel and the ETSU campus dormitory is minutes away.
ABOUT EAST TENNESSEE STATE UNIVERSITY
ETSU was established in 1911 and recently celebrated its 100th year anniversary. ETSU is located in Johnson City, which is in the northeast part of Tennessee, known for outdoor activities such as hiking and biking in the summer time. ETSU's Exercise and Sport Science Department is rapidly growing as an undergraduate program, and our newly established Ph.D. program (started fall of 2010) now has 16 students. We are pleased to announce that our program will host a designated Olympic training site for USA weightlifting, with hope that other USA teams will join us in the near future.
